Have 1 O/U, 2 semis. Use O/U in nice weather and semis in crappy weather.

Re: O/U or Semi. You help me choose!

Personal opinion, if I'd be shooting more clays than hunting I'd buy an O/U. I'd avoid the Red Label. There's a reason you don't see many on the clays courses. If $$ is no oblect, then a Perazzi, Krieghoff or Zoli. If the budget is tighter then look at the Guerini, Browning and Beretta. All above named guns are quality and will last you a LOOOOOOOONG time, or until you just want to buy another gun!! The only semi I use is a Franchi AL 48 Super 28 gauge for bird hunting. All my clay shooting is with an O/U or SxS.

Re: O/U or Semi. You help me choose!

I have 2 O/U's, a Red Label and Antonio Zoli. They're both .20 ga. I don't shoot a lot of clays, maybe a few courses of sporting clays a year and some skeet, but I do shoot the heck out of my Red Label because I use it for all my hunting. I've never had a problem with mine. I figured out a while ago anything you can kill with a 12 gauge, you can kill with a 20 so there is no need to lug the extra weight.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Re: O/U or Semi. You help me choose!

I have an o/u and a semi. I want my next one to be a red label as well. As one poster said you dont see a lot of htem on the clays because they are Heavier than brownings or beretta's. Ruger makes a fine shotgun and no problems. I am not a fan of the Semi's prefer pumps if i need 3 shots. the big question is What do you want to do with it. IF you dont need 3 shots O/U all the way
